Will Georgina Chapman Look To Hubby Harvey For Advice On Her Filmmaking Debut?
Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman has moviemaking in the family—her husband is mega-producer Harvey Weinstein—but it’s only recently that Chapman herself has tiptoed into the fray. As was reported this summer, Chapman is one of five notables—alongside Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Twitter’s Biz Stone, and former LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy—creating a short film at the behest of Canon’s Project Imagina10n, based on photographs submitted by Canon users nationwide and personally selected by each participant. “They all have a magical sense to them,” Chapman told Style.com about her own selection process. (The nine photos she chose will go up this week on Longliveimagination.com.) “Right now it could go in so many ways.” Those ways might be swayed by her fellow participants, her mentor on the project, Ron Howard, or her husband, but for right now, Chapman is keeping her own counsel. “I want to know what we are doing first” before turning to anyone else, she said. “My worst fear is to get too many ideas. I wanted to start with a completely clean canvas.” A few of Chapman’s selections are below; the rest can be found on the project’s Web site.
